Suffolk County, NY - July 17 - Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker announces the Senior Advocates summer schedule. Senior Advocates will be visiting various locations across the county throughout July, August, and September to educate seniors on benefits they may be eligible for and assist them in applying for those benefits.
“Many seniors and their loved ones go unaware of the benefits and resources available to them at the county, state, and federal level,” says Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker. “Senior Advocates from the Suffolk County Office for the Aging provide essential information on how seniors in our community can maintain their personal independence and receive the care they need.”
Legislator Anker encourages senior residents to attend one of the scheduled Senior Advocates meetings to receive free benefits counseling. A list of meetings within the sixth legislative district (Mount Sinai, Miller Place, Sound Beach, Rocky Point, Shoreham, Wading River, Ridge, Middle Island, and Coram) can be found below:
George Link Apartments (8:30 – 10:30 a.m.)
Comsewogue Library (2:30 – 4:30 p.m.)
Rose Caracappa Senior Center/Mount Sinai Nutrition (9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.)
Longwood Library (2:30 – 4:30 p.m.)
For over 40 years, Suffolk County Office for the Aging has administered federal, state and county programs for persons 60 years of age and older. Specific goals for the Office are to develop a comprehensive service system designed to assist persons 60 years of age and older in maintaining maximum independence and dignity, to remove barriers to economic and personal independence, and to provide a continuum of care for the vulnerable elderly. Most importantly, Suffolk County Office for the Aging acts as advocate on behalf of all Suffolk County senior citizens. For more information and a complete list of the July, August, and September Advocates’ dates, please call 631-853-8200 or you can visit www.suffolkcountyny.gov/aging.
